Join Book Buddies

Book BuddiesDo you have a child in K - 3rd grades or ages 5-9? Do you want to help your child Book Buddiesdevelop a love for reading? Pick up an application for Harris County Public Libraries Book Buddies at Northwest Branch.  What is it all about? Book Buddies is a free program that brings children and teens together to share the joy of reading.  It pairs trained teen volunteers (Big Buddies) with children in K-3rd grades (Little Buddies). For 10 weeks, the Buddies meet once a week for 45 minutes of shared reading.  We will not meet the week of spring break or the week before Easter.  The last session is a celebration where we Book Buddieswill have a treasure hunt through the library, hand out certificates of achievement and everyone gets a free book. We will meet Thursdays starting February 15th - May 3rd 4:45 to 5:30 pm. How do I sign my child up to be a Little Buddy? Ask for an application at the desk and turn it in by February 1st.
